Game, set, match
In his 1994 book, The Muslim Slave System in India (p. 175), K.S. Lal gave one of the most concise explanations Iíve seen of why moderate Islam is simply an impossibility:
Muhammad could not change the revelation; he could only explain and interpret it. There are liberal Muslims and conservative Muslims; there are Muslims learned in theology and Muslims devoid of learning. They discuss, they interpret, they rationalizeóbut all by going round and round within the closed circle of Islam. There is no possibility of getting out of the fundamentals of Islam; there is no provision of introducing any innovation.
